Indigenous and tribal peoples

Workers who belong to indigenous and tribal peoples have the right to enjoy equal opportunities and equal treatment in employment for women and men. The Indigenous and Tribal Peoples Convention, 1989 (No. 169), is the only international instrument which explicitly includes protection from sexual harassment. Indigenous and tribal peoples should enjoy, without discrimination, the full measure of human rights and fundamental freedoms.

Governments should develop, with the participation of the peoples concerned, coordinated and systematic action to protect the rights of these peoples and to guarantee respect for their integrity. Efforts should be made to ensure that they benefit on an equal footing from the rights and opportunities which are granted to other members of the population, with respect for the social and cultural identity of the peoples in question as well as their customs and institutions. Special measures - which cannot be contrary to their freely expressed wishes - should be implemented to safeguard the individuals, institutions, property, labour, cultures and environment of the peoples.
